The hardest thing about sticking to a diet is trying to avoid carbs. Bread, chips, crackers, and especially noodles are my weakness. Fortunately I recently discovered spaghetti squash! This is an amazing substitute for spaghetti noodles. Not quite the same flavor but it has a stringy texture like noodles and tastes great with tomato sauce. Best part is that unlike noodles, spaghetti squash is extremely low in calories. Just about 30 calories in a one cup serving. I could seriously eat this stuff all day long. Oh wait, I have been! I usually eat at least 1 of them per week. You can easily microwave spaghetti squash (about 20 minutes on high) but you can also stick it in your crock pot and make a meal of it! I cooked it with some seriously good homemade turkey meatballs. My husband devoured them!
UPDATE: The meatballs are big but I was thinking 10 points seemed like a lot. So I just went back and looked at the Weight Watchers Recipe where I got my info and they were calculating the points of spaghetti noodles with the meatballs! No wonder! So I just entered all the meatball ingredients in my Weight Watchers App and they come out to be 1/2 point per meatball!! Although I would make them 1 point each just to be on the safe side. This dish just got a whole lot better!!! Thanks to my Facebook followers for questioning the points as well.
